Dhoni and his boys will try to keep the islanders on bay, after clinching the top spot in the ICC Test Rankings. India had started their journey in a brilliant way in the shortest version of the game by winning the inaugural Twenty20 world cup in South Africa. But in the year 2008-09, Team India completely failed to prove its metal in the game. India had managed to win only against three teams and lost against five teams in the World Cup. However, Sril Lanka were the runners up in the second World Cup. They had an unbeaten march until the final where they lost to Pakistan.The interesting fact is that India has lost its past 3 encounters and Sri Lanka has lost its last 4 matches in a row.Come back boy, Sreesanth would be a doubtful starter for today's T20 match as he has a stomach upset. India have rested Zaheer Khan and Harbhajan Singh, whereas Muttiah Murlitharan has injured his finger while practicing during the third test and will not be playing in todays game. Jayasuriya is back in the Sri Lankan sqaud and a lot will depend upon him and his opening partner Tillakaratne Dilshan.Sri Lankan Captain Sangakkara has said that they would start attacking from the the first ball itself and are very keen to take revenge of the test series loss. The India Sri Lanka Live match is due to start in half an hour and it promises to be a thriller.
